Charcoal: The Best Ingredient in Skin Care

Charcoal: The Best Ingredient in Skin Care

What is the best ingredient in skin care?


Recently, it has become increasingly popular in the health industry, with products such as charcoal face masks, charcoal toothpaste, and even charcoal lemonade. 

However, products like these aren't just a trend, research has proven that charcoal is a great way to naturally remove toxins from the body.

While it has primarily been used for centuries to ease digestive distress and detoxify the body, charcoal has recently been shown to have great benefits for the skin as well.

3 Reasons to Add Charcoal to your Skin Care Routine 

1. Helps Remove impurities from the skin

Charcoal has an absorptive quality that acts like a magnet by adhering to gunk in our pores and drawing it out. This allows skin to breathe and function properly.

Charcoal’s adsorptive ability of activated charcoal is so powerful that for the last 100 years it has been used internally as an antidote to serious poisoning.

This absorptive quality can have a powerful effect when it comes to binding to impurities on the surface of our skin, such as dirt, pollutants from our environment, and build-up.

2. Controls oiliness

When our pores are congested, nothing we put on our skin can penetrate, and anything that should be expelled can’t get out. This causes the trapped oils in your skin to go rancid, which breaks down collagen, accelerating skin aging. Furthermore, it can exacerbate ailments, such as acne, dryness, excessive oil, and rosacea.

By removing dead skin cells and absorbing excess oil, charcoal can help give the skin a healthy glow without too much shine.

3. Gently exfoliates

In addition to removing impurities and controlling oiliness, charcoal’s slightly gritty texture makes it a great option for gentle exfoliation.

Exfoliation is essential for removing buildup on the surface of our skin, which can clog pores, further exacerbate blemishes, and result in an uneven, dull appearance.

Charcoal helps us achieve even, supple skin with a one-two combination of exfoliation and simultaneous purification. Plus, it’s gentle enough to use on sensitive skin since the granules are so small.


Adding charcoal to your soap is an easy way to help cultivate healthy and radiant skin. 

When looking for a good charcoal soap, make sure it is fragrance and chemical-free, like our Purifying Charcoal bar. If the charcoal is paired with fragrances and chemicals, it will end up doing more harm than good for your skin. 

After the skin is gently detoxified by the charcoal, we've paired our Purifying Charcoal with oils of Coconut, Olive, Jojoba, and Avocado to nourish and moisturize the skin

The result is a smoother and more radiant skin tone.
